Treetrunk

Treetrunk Records, hailing from MidWestern USA, accepts quality musical submissions from artists from all over the globe. Our original mission was to showcase ambient and particularly experimental ambient (such as fractal / generative) music. For some time we also expanded into the field of phonography or field recordings, for both raw recordings and manipulated recorded material. Finally we have opened the doors a bit to other genres, accepting various quality submissions, though we still prefe...

Thomas Park took several scores of recordings of machines made using a contact microphone, in high fidelity, and ran them through a program that adds random processes to the sounds. He chose the 100 best outtakes, and trimmed them to make them usable. These sounds are fun for listening, and would be ideal for using as elements in music or sound design. If you would like to embark on a live mixing adventure, you can try mixing the first 30 sounds in real time with "The Machine Shop" .

Here is a collection of sounds that began as high fidelity recordings of a shortwave radio. These recordings were then processed using a random effects processor-- the best examples of processed sounds were collected and uploaded. These sounds are ideal for those curious about shortwave radios, or for use as sound sources for music or sound design. Just for fun, you can experience live mixing, with the first 30 sounds here, by clicking on the "Shortwave Mix Station" .

Encrypted Transmission is a netrelease comprised of Generative works by DJ Frankenstone. Materials used were mostly home-created or home collected phonographic works.  The author feels the effect is to offer a sort of controlled chaos of musical and spoken sounds from various periods in Western Post-Industrial culture.

Each source file is in high fidelity, 24/96 quality, with no clipping and no effects added. Recordings were edited to isolate specific portions of sound, but that was the only additional treatment.

I have been working on my Generative-Iterative Python code for some time now. I use Python to process and mix sounds, often using many random processes. Generative-Iterative is, therefore, a sub-genre of Generative music that focuses on loop-based composition. In 11.2020, I perfected a technique of overdubbing through which I could automatically create tracks, in a manner of seconds. Music, in this way, could be mass-produced. The results were curated, and about 30% were retained, those of...

I grew up mostly in the 1980's. Many would agree that the music during this time period was often flashy, excessive, and transitory. America was wealthy as a whole and there was lots of corporate expansion. At the same time, the messy end of the Cold War left us feeling a fear of a nuclear apolcalypse. The media had hyped the war enough that hardly a day would go by without a thought of the end. I honestly did not think I would survive into my 20's. Luckily, I was wrong, and looking back, I...

Musician Edward J. Powley created a wonderful set of shimmering generative pieces. "For each track, a few thousand iterations of Conway's Game of Life were used to choose notes to play through a bank of plucked string synths. The resulting wav files were then processed in Adobe Audition to make them a bit easier on the ears." Highly recommended!
